As expected, Arsenal unveiled both their new Puma kits and highly anticipated new signing Alexis Sanchez at the Emirates today.
Let us count the ways that this improves the situation at the Emirates. First, he's a great player and a confirmation that Mesut Ozil wasn't a one-off top tier signing for Arsenal. Secondly, he fills multiple needs in his ability to play as a central forward instead of Olivier Giroud (offering a different set of issues for a defense) or as a compliment to Giroud in place of either Lukas Podolski (who hasn't been as effective as hoped) or Theo Walcott (who is frequently injured). Beyond his direct impact, Sanchez won't be going to Liverpool which hurts a rival. Finally, a bunch of money will be going to Barcelona that will, presumably, go to funding the purchase of Luis Suarez which further hurts one of Arsenal's rivals. Could it get any better for the Gunners? (OK, maybe if Mathieu Debuchy and Sami Khedira join Sanchez it gets better) Jul 10 - 4:36 PM
